Virgin gives early adopters benefit of recent price cut
First TiVo owners get £50 refund
In a rare moment of magnanimity - for the consumer electronics boz - Virgin Media is apparently compensating early adopters for a subsequent price cut.
When it began offering its 1TB hard drive-equipped, TiVo-based set-top box, Virgin charged punters £150 for the unit.
Now, both existing Virgin customers and new ones pay £100 for the box - or £50 if they opt for the 500GB model.
Usually that's tough luck for the folk who coughed up the higher price. But not this time: Virgin has been emailing punters telling them: "We're giving you a £50 refund on your Virgin Media account, so you'll be paying our new and improved price." ®
